- “We didn't have a chance, Kanan. These Mandalorians work for the Empire!”
- ―The aftermath of the dogfight
Phoenix Squadron were engaged by the Protectors of Concord Dawn in a dogfight over Concord Dawn. The skirmish arose after the rebels tried to secure the right to pass through the Concord Dawn System as part of a new hyperspace route to Lothal. Fenn Rau, leader of the Protectors and an ally of the Empire, attacked Phoenix Squadron with his fellow Mandalorian starfighter pilots. Multiple Phoenix pilots were killed and Captain Hera Syndulla was seriously injured in their retreat. After the battle, Kanan Jarrus and Sabine Wren traveled to the Protectors Camp on the third moon of Concord Dawn and, after some hostilities, were able to secure the help of Fenn Rau.
